White Silber: A Cold Slow Xmas
Well, here we are again with another in our free Christmas compilation series. I think this is the sixth one. Kinda ridiculous when I stop to think about it. The big difference this time out is that I didn’t put this one together. Silber intern Ben Collins put this together as his level four internship project, so look out for him to be starting his own label soon enough now that he knows all our tricks. Or maybe to never start a label since he knows what a headache it can be. It could go either way. Thanks Ben for all your hard work.
What’s there to say about this compilation? Old friends & new friends doing mainly original compositions & mainly instrumental pieces. An artist roster of Aarktica, Small Cities, Charles Atlas, Andrew Weathers, This Quiet Army, Electric Bird Noise, Lullabier, Bryce Eiman, Polar400, Miss Massive Snowflake, Gorgons, Origami Galaktika, Remora, Lozninger, Fornever, Moodring, Subscape Annex, Carta, Small Life Form, Zanzibar Snails, Moral Crayfish, Northern Valentine, Medit, & Yellow 6. So a solid representation from the Silber roster, the 919Noise scene, all our old friends, & some folks we’ve just met. I hope you dig it all & maybe find a new favorite band or two. Personally I’m pretty pleased at how it simultaneously goes all over the musical map & remains cohesive. Noise, beats, slowcore, found sounds, guitar walls, & occasionally things that could pass for rock & roll.
Merry Christmas & thanks for your continued interest & support, it really does mean a lot to us.
